PORT EVERGLADES, Fla. (AP) - A 4-year-old boy is being treated at a South Florida hospital after nearly drowning in a cruise ship wave pool.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1KbTq0h ) reports that the incident happened on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas on Saturday just after the ship departed from Port Everglades. The ship returned to the port Saturday evening.

According to emergency officials, the boy was swept underwater for between five and 10 minutes. He was immediately treated by the ship’s medical team, but needed additional treatment.
